The Classics Club

I recently posted about reading classic literature, and how I feel like I need to read more of it, so I have decided to join The Classics Club!  The goal is to read 50 classics in 5 years. I will post my thoughts, progress, and reviews here as I tackle my giant list.  I am a little intimidated by this challenge, but I’m excited too.  Thanks to Arya at fangirlarya for telling me about this club!  If you want to join me let me know in the comments and we can cheer each other on! Here we go!
